is ticking. it's been three weeks since the election and congress really no closer to a deal on the fiscal cliff, unless they're not telling us something. that's a possibility. now both sides appear to be focusing on what they want to rule out rather than what they're willing to compromise on. we're live on capitol hill with the very latest. david: also, we held a small business summit right here on "after the bell," and it looks like the president was watching. he has invited small business owners to discuss what they want to see from congress. we'll be talking behind the closed doors with one of those who was behind the closed doors, the ceo of bottom line growth strategy, she was at the meeting. liz: david, are you feeling lucky? david: yes. liz: the powerball jackpot at a massive $500 million, but before you run out to buy your ticket, we're going to tell you what the real payouts are. i know that won't stop you, nonetheless, you'll still get a bunch of coin. is and where the money actually goes -- and where the money actually goes. ♪ [ male announcer ] this is steve. he loves risk.
